Ellen Jameson Counselling
A relaxed, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential environment for couples counselling, individual counselling and separation counselling
Welcome to Ellen Jameson Counselling. I offer relaxed, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential environment for couples counselling, individual counselling and separation counselling. We can work together to help you gain greater understanding about what is standing in the way of a more fulfilling life and relationships, to identify the effects of problems on your life and consider different and preferred ways of relating to difficult or challenging situations.
I have a flexible approach to meet the differing needs of the people who come to see me. I work in a confidential and sensitive way that is open, relaxed and supportive.
It can be a difficult step to recognise that we need help and to seek it. Our society coaches us to be independent and self-reliant, to 'just get on with it'. Of course, what this attitude doesn't take into account is that, as human beings, we all depend on each other for support and understanding in tough times. I will offer you an Initial Consultation where you can tell me your story and we can talk about your hopes and aspirations. If you decide that you would like to continue, we can book an appointment for ongoing counselling.
Are you feeling flat, lacking confidence and motivation, or experiencing anxiety and depression? I can work with you to change the way you see and feel about yourself and your potential in life.
Has the sparkle gone out of your relationship? Do you feel as though your partner has become the enemy? Are you trapped in a repetitive cycle of blame and counter-blame? I can work with you to create a different relationship where you rediscover a curiosity about each other and where you feel understood, supported and loved.
If you’re thinking about separation from your partner or have decided to end your couple relationship, I can work with you to negotiate a respectful and collaborative process of separation. Both partners and any children can benefit hugely from this at a time of dramatic change.
Counselling is a process of exploration and discovery. We can work together to:
Examine problems you may be experiencing which are keeping you 'stuck' in unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving.
Explore how you would prefer to be living and relating to those close to you.
Discover ways of shifting your perceptions and behaviours in order to gain clarity about what you want and how to achieve it.
I believe that relationships are at the heart of happy and meaningful lives. I specialise in counselling couples and individuals. I offer a safe, relaxed, and non-judgemental environment in which to talk things through. We can work together to help you gain greater understanding about what is standing in the way of a more fulfilling life and relationships, to identify the effects of problems on your life and consider different and preferred ways of relating to difficult or challenging situations.
You are welcome to contact me for an exploratory conversation prior to booking an appointment
’Thank you for all your help. I’m still dealing with some issues but I’m working through them and they no longer have such a huge hold on me. I can’t thank you enough for helping me move on from a ‘bad’ place. I do look back to remind myself how far I’ve come. I’ve made changes which I’d never thought possible.’
‘We have been amazed by the difference counselling has made to our relationship. You have helped us through a really difficult time and your insight and understanding have helped us to see past our problems and enjoy each other again. We feel that our relationship is better now than it has ever been!'
- Tom and Sally
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your professional help. Those sessions have been absolutely priceless for me! I feel ready again to face whatever life throws at me - and with confidence this time!'
‘From our first meeting, you made me feel very comfortable and I felt that you really heard and understood me. You blended validation of my feelings with gentle challenging of my assumptions and helped me to see things in ways that I hadn't been able to on my own. I am grateful for the work we did together and feel much happier and healthier for it.'
